I thought I'd share a rockin' jacket I made for our next ad, the Dia de los Muertos Jacket! Our fabulous Danielle is modelling, and decided the jacket I found and stitched was hers. A battle ensued. Then Karline decided she wanted one. Now we think we might make a bunch and be a little embroidery gang. Whacha think?



(Danielle won the jacket in the end)

Anyone got a name for our newly formed rough and tumble embroidery gang?

"The Bitchin' Stitchers"  (You know, bitchin' as in "cool" or "sweet" like from the 70s.) 

Great jacket, it looks fantabulous!  Smiley

No, this is the machine embroidery version. All though I've seen tons of hand embroidered versions that look awesome Smiley

bordello nombre bordado Smiley  Obviously, bordello doesn't have the best of connotations, but I like the way it sounds with bordado and it IS gritty Wink  Nombre bordado should mean "embroidery" in Spanish, but I could be wrong Smiley

awesome jacket!

Just "bordado".  "nombre" means noun.  And that skull is gorgeous.  To die for.

I loved this enough to go buy the pattern from the site :-)

What embroidery machine do you use? I can't make large patterns on mine and would REALLY like to.

I purchased this design from UT a couple of months ago. I test stitched it out and it stitched beautifully. I haven't put it on anything yet but I'm dying to.

What's more.... I had to take my machine in for some updates and adjustments because it stopped stitching properly right in the middle of another design.
This one...   http://www.urbanthreads.com/product_details?product_id=63&category_id=27

So I left the emb in the hoop and loaded up the whole mess.
My repair person fixed the machine and we finished embroidering the design right there. While it was running we chatted and she commented that 'this design sure is stitching nicely. It is well digitized.' Her words. So I shared the name of the Urban Threads website with her. She's not a digitizer but those of us who emb a lot can recognize a well digitized design from a crappily digitized design because we embroider a lot and have experienced our share of both

One more thing. Last year I did a little digitizing. When I say a little I mean very little. It is time consuming and tedious. I have a new-found respect for someone who takes the time to work with a design till it stitches out perfectly. It's easy to want to give in before that.

UT's designs are great, I highly recommend them

^ i'm totally on board on what the previous person said. UT rocks! but to be fair, they're using some really good equipment to digitize Wink i'm actually in awe when i see all the ideas that they have produced and how well they draw.

we have the technology. Smiley

and hooray for UT, without them.. what would we do?

amarok...

Speaking of digitizing... If you digitize or would like to play around with it for free, here's a program that I found on the net and have been playing with it myself.

It's huge, over 300mb but if you have the room on your computer it's fun.
